If you're a BCN AdvantageSM member, this will tell you how to get extra dental, vision and hearing coverage to go with your plan.

When you have a cavity, blurry vision or hearing problems, it can have just as much of an impact on your quality of life as a sore back. So when you buy a health insurance plan, it’s nice to know that dental, vision and hearing care are covered.

What our plans cover

All our BCN Advantage HMO-POS or HMO plans include:

  • Dental exams
  • Dental cleanings
  • Vision exams
  • Cataract surgery
  • Glasses or contacts after cataract surgery

What our plans don’t cover

  • Common dental procedures like fillings, crowns and root canals.
  • Some of our plans don’t cover glasses and contacts.
  • Routine hearing exams or hearing aids.

Optional supplemental dental, vision and hearing plan

If you want more complete dental and vision coverage, you can add a supplemental plan for an extra monthly premium. This plan covers:
